Exhibition Details

Submitting Artwork for Review:
  • There is no fee to submit or enter.
  • Each exhibit will have a different theme, and we ask all entries to be related to that theme. Unless specified otherwise, our exhibition opportunities do not have expectations for medium, style, or techniques.
    • Oftentimes, we receive more entries than we have space.  So we will review all submissions and then contact back with how many/which pieces we wish to accept for the exhibition’s duration. 
  • Exhibition entries are open to professionals and amateurs alike. Any minors (19 years and younger) who wish to enter must provide proof of parental consent.
  • We accept artworks from all over the United States, but priority will be given to Alabama artists and artists of the Southeast. 
  • You may submit artworks that are for display only as well as artworks for sale.

Exhibition Show
  • All 2D artworks must be gallery-wrapped or framed, and 2D artworks must have galley wire installed in order to be accepted.
  • Please allow for thirty (30) minutes during the Art Take In process. We will require you to fill out Take-In paperwork and entry labels to tape to the back of your artwork (unless restricted by medium).
  • We ask all accepted artworks to remain in our care during the entirety of the exhibition’s duration. However, we also understand that things happen, so you may contact us if you wish to request a special exemption.

  • The Kelly will collect a 25% donation commission for each artwork that is sold.  This commission includes the costs of credit card fees, so the artist is remit a true 75% of their artwork’s sale.
